Alexis Teresa “Lexi” Bickle, 16, of Rockford, Ohio, died Saturday afternoon, October 15, 2016, at Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne, Indiana, as the result of injuries sustained in an auto accident.  She was born in Van Wert, Ohio on July 27, 2000, the daughter of Donald and Mary (Minch) Bickle. 


Lexi was a Junior at Parkway High School in Rockford, and was very active in school activities:  she was a member of the Parkway Band, the Parkway softball team and basketball team; FCCLA; a member of the Grand Lake Fall Softball League; and she also played on the traveling softball team based out of Rockford—the “Rockford Rippers”.  She was also a member of St. Teresa Catholic Church in Rockford, OH.


Lexi had this contagious smile that everyone loved, and was compassionate and endearing to everyone she met; she also could be stubborn, which she got from both her mother and dad, and she had a big heart, which she got from her mom!  Lexi is giving life to others through the donation of her organs, again showing that she was such a generous, caring person.


Surviving in addition to her mother, Mary and her dad Don, of Rockford, is a brother and his wife—Ryan and Brittany Bickle and their son Gage, of Ohio City; her maternal grandparents, Paul and Norma Minnich of Portland, Indiana; paternal grandparents, Bruce and Connie Bickle of Ohio City, and Bart and Betty Sidle, also of Ohio City.  Many aunts, uncles, and cousins also survive.  Deceased is a maternal grandfather Ed Minch, and an aunt, Teresa Minch. 


Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Wednesday, October 19, 2016, at 10:30 a.m. at the Celina Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, Celina, Ohio, with Father Ken Schnipke officiating.  A memorial service will be held at New Horizons Community Church in Rockford, at 6:30 p.m. with Pastor Dave Souers officiating. 


The family will receive friends before the memorial service from 4:30 p.m. up until the time of the service.
